Approximately 1-billion people have viewed the famous Windows XP "Bliss" wallpaper, but not many know of the story behind it. Well, it was photographer Charles O'Rear who captured the iconic landscape in Sonoma County, California, in 1996. The image was first sent to Corbis, an advertising and licensing agency, who then sold the rights to Microsoft in 2000, one year before the launch of Windows XP. "I am turning seventy-six and realize how much the Microsoft Bliss photograph has meant to my life. As the photographer of the most viewed photo in history, I have enjoyed every minute of the fame," said O'Rear said. Now, he's started a new project called the "New Angles of America," directed towards smartphones users. Continue reading for more pictures, another video and additional information.

Brown Eyes to Blue Eyes

Pioneered by California company Stroma Medical, that new medical procedure claims to turn brown eyes blue. This laser-based procedure works by eliminating the melanin - the pigment that also colors hair and skin - from the surface of the iris, thus allowing light to enter and scatter in the stroma, the fibers seen in light-colored eyes. Think of it as the Rayleigh scattering effect, where wavelengths of sunlight hit much smaller molecules in the air and then scatter, which makes the atmosphere appear blue.
